A TOTAL of 100,000 fully-grown marijuana plants valued at P21.25 million were eradicated by Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (Pdea) policemen at Mt. Kasablotan in Barangay Loccong, Tinglayan, Kalinga over the weekend.

Pdea Regional Director Oliver Enmodias said the illegal plants were discovered in a one-hectare plantation on March 16.

He said around 50 kilograms of dried marijuana leaves were also recovered from the area but his men failed to arrest any marijuana cultivator.

Enmodias said the eradication operation is part of "Implan Green Gold-Cordillera," a massive eradication campaign in identified marijuana cultivation sites in the region. This was also a result of various seizures of dried marijuana bricks in Tabuk, Kalinga recently.

The Pdea official also had an informal audience with Tinglayan Mayor Johnny Maymaya, who informed him that the town is developing an alternative livelihood for farmers by urging them to cultivate Arabica coffee plants.

"The mayor has informed us that a total of 12,000 coffee seedlings have already been distributed and planted by farmers in the municipality," Enmodias said.

Maymaya also sought the assistance of concerned government agencies to help realize their target of planting 500 hectares of land with coffee plants to allow marijuana cultivators to deviate from planting the illegal herb.

Cordillera continues to be known as a major source of high-grade marijuana plants, which are reportedly being shipped to various countries around the world.

The U.S. has so many troops over there now it had to be eradicated lest they become corrupted. They can get shot or blown up, but don't expose them to what they might toke on at home.
I recall that many,many mango seasons ago, in up country Thailand, when the saviors of the world were on "joint" exercises up there, some do gooders were worried that they might even take up the practice of chewing beetle nut like the native women did.
O.K. men! Fall out for purple teeth and gum check!!!
